Few bands can lay claim to inventing a genre or style of music -- but Shabazz Palaces have done exactly that. What happens when electronic music is combined with Sun Ra, John Coltrane and a sense of experimentalism is where Shabazz Palaces begins. Palaceer Lanzaro a.k.a. Butterfly from Digable Planets and Baba Maraire talk about teaching themselves to play musical instruments, why they decided to start self-releasing their music, and how things that happen to them on the way to a gig will influence the show by their feeding off what happened and putting that energy into a variation of a performance routine. Shabazz Palaces is described by their label Sub Pop as what music would be like if “Bedouins herded beats instead of goats and settled in Seattle instead of the Atlas Mountains.”

The beat will always save us ...
